Mee: We Know What We Need To Do

Ton-up Clarets defender confident in ability to get campaign moving

15 September 2018

Centurion Ben Mee is confident the Clarets are ready to kick-start their Premier League campaign as they prepare to get back to business at Wolves on Sunday.

Sean Dyche’s men go to Molineux for the televised lunchtime kick-off (1.30pm) with only one point to show for their efforts from their opening four fixtures.

But Mee is not overly concerned by the Clarets’ slow start – which coincided with a six-game run in the Europa League – and insists the mood in the camp is nothing but positive ahead of another run of four games ahead of the next international break.

“It’s been a tough start. We’ve had a lot of games, but we enjoyed the European period,” said the long-serving defender, who is set to start his 100th top-flight game for the Clarets.

“No-one was complaining about being in Europe at all and we all want to play in big games and as many as we can.

“But I guess we can focus on the Premier League now. It will be nice to get back playing again and we’re looking forward to Sunday.

“We want to improve our league performances and get those points on the board.

“But it’s only four games in and we’re not going to panic or anything like that.

“There’s a lot of football to play. We know what we need to do and I am confident, the lads are confident and everyone is confident around here that we are going to pick up points and start moving up that table.

“There’s no panic on our side but we want to put in the work that will make us get those points.”

The Clarets were beaten on their last road trip at Fulham last month and face another newly promoted side in Wolves.

The Midlanders – last season’s Championship winners – have drawn their opening two home league games and won last time out at West Ham.

But Mee sees only the Clarets’ second Premier League trip to Molineux as a chance to add to the reward Burnley picked up from an impressive opening-day performance at Southampton where a clean sheet and a 0-0 draw got them up and running.

“Teams are taking us a lot more seriously, so we have got to rise to that challenge as well and get back to what we’re about,” Mee told Clarets Player HD.

“They are flying with confidence. They have had a couple of decent results and I’m sure the atmosphere will be really good there.

“We will have to go there with the right attitude and a good mentality.

“We want to pick up points and I think Sunday is a good opportunity for us to go and do that.”
